The National Community Pharmacists Association (NCPA) and the National Association of Chain Drug Stores (NACDS) are now speaking with one voice. The associations recently formed the Coalition for Community Pharmacy Action (CCPA) to represent them on legislative and regulatory issues of common interest.

"CCPA's success is critical to the continued economic viability of not only community pharmacists, but also the health and safety of millions of patients who rely on their community pharmacists for medications and professional services," said Bruce Roberts, RPh, NCPA executive vice president and chief executive officer.

Robert Hannan, NACDS interim president and chief executive officer, said,"Working together,we can be more effective in influencing the formation of legislation and regulations affecting community pharmacy." Hannan is serving as Executive Committee cochairman for CCPA.
